Benefits in Eating certain foods
Bouncing off the post The great Thailand vloggers war - Anyone for Chicken Feet - Dan refuses to eat the chicken feet - but does he know the goodness that comes from having a munch on them - so much goodness - you can boil them fry them serve with stews - eat by hand and just suck what little meat they have - might not fill you up but have a read of what good they have.

Eating chicken feet may sound unappetizing to some people, but it is considered to be a delicacy in many Asian countries, including China, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Korea. The way things are today with some, it's good to avoid wasting any edible parts of the chicken, chicken feet were traditionally from the lower income groups, tesco sells them, buy them cooked in batter in the market. only around 20 baht a portion.

they say benefits of eating chicken feet leads to a good, clear complexion. chicken feet contains lots of collagen the ingredient for youthful looking skin. he! he! the fountain of youth, good for us oldies i'm sure. rich in calcium and protein, without the carbohydrates. they say it also  improves blood supply, has metabolizing fats, therefore good for weight loss.

collagen supplements, are so expensive, so chicken feet instead, a mere few baht and think of the goodness as you munch through them. the feet consists of bones, skin, and tendons, but no muscles.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

the saying goes,  "Eat fish, live longer – eat oysters love longer – eat clams last longer
                             i think the last one is only a rumour.

Yes oysters are healthy for you loads of zinc, but i think i prefer ...
Tubby Isaac's Jellied Eels. i wish, he's gone, the story goes he never wanted his sons to be called up when the war come along so off he went with then to america. tubby isaac's Jellied Eel Stall was then run by Paul Simpson, in his own words,

"My father, Ted Simpson, had the business before me, he got it from his Uncle Solly who took over from Tubby Isaac, who opened the first stall in 1919. Isaac ran it until 1939 when he got a whiff of another war coming and emigrated to America with his boys, so they would not be conscripted – but then they got enlisted over there instead. And when Isaac left, his nephew Solly took over the business and ran it until he died in 1975. Then my dad ran it from 1975 'til 1989, and I've been here ever since." full story spitalfieldslife.com

jellied eels were served to Burt Reynolds and American talk show host Mike Douglas in the seventies, Ronnie Corbett, Joan Rivers helped out at the stall in the eighties.

Thai researcher wonders if chicken feathers on the menu might fly
(Reuters) - When Sorawut Kittibanthorn was looking for new types of waste to recycle, the then London-based student was drawn to the millions of tons of chicken feathers being discarded each year.

Now back in his homeland of Thailand, the 30-year-old is seeking funding to continue his research into how best to convert the nutrient component found in the feathers into a powder that can be transformed into a lean, protein-rich source of edible food.

"Chicken feather contains protein and if we are able to serve this protein to others in the world, the demand from everyone... will help reduce waste," Sorawut told Reuters.

Indeed the potential appears huge, given that Sorawut reckons about 2.3 million tons of feathers are being dumped in Europe alone each year.

And with generally higher poultry consumption in Asia, he believes there could be up to 30% more feather waste that could be exploited in the region.

Sorawut, who studied for a Masters of Material Futures in London, said the idea still needs to go through other research and development phases.

But prototypes including his take on chicken nuggets and a steak substitute have received positive reviews from some.

"You know the texture is very complex and advanced. It's something you wouldn't imagine that chicken feathers will be able to improvise into this kind of dish," said food blogger Cholrapee Asvinvichit, after tucking into "steak" served with gravy, mashed potatoes and a salad. "I really could imagine this (being served) to me in some like, Michelin star (restaurant), or some fine dining experience."

Hathairat Rimkeeree, a food sciences professor at Kasesart University, was also pleasantly surprised by the results.

"I think it does have the potential to become an alternative food source in the future."

Plant-based substitutes for meat have been gaining popularity as more people shift towards vegan or vegetarian diets, amid growing concerns about health risks from eating meat, animal welfare and the environmental hazards of intensive animal farming.

While feather-based foods could not be categorised as vegan or vegetarian, Sorawut feels they should be considered ethical dining.

"I plan to approach the zero-waste restaurants first because even though these dishes are made from poultry waste, it is still a by-product from animals (we normally consume)."
